Overview

For budding chefs, or just those interested in food, but definitely on a budget - try out Backpackers' Cooking Class. Based in a traditional Marrakech riad - it is a fun, communal experience with great English, French, Spanish and Italian speaking staff. The real challenge is getting a tagine into your backpack to show off to your friends!

We really enjoyed the course, and it was the cheapest one we could find. You browse the local market with one of the chefs and you pay for the ingradients up front. It would have been easier if all students had put in money at...More
